Studio Lambert writes script for drama move

The production company behind reality hits including Gogglebox and Undercover Boss is moving into scripted television.

Studio Lambert will open a drama division after founder Stephen Lambert agreed a new deal with All3Media, the company that supported Studio Lambert’s launch in 2008.

The deal means Lambert will stay with All3Media until at least 2020, and gives him the funding to launch a drama label within his company.

Lambert said: “We are in a golden age of scripted television on both sides of the Atlantic, and I’m excited by the prospect of us creating some hit scripted shows as well as building up our successful non-scripted slate.”A head of Studio Lambert’s drama division will be announced in the coming weeks.
